Is the world in or fast approaching the End-Times prophesied in Matthew, the Book of Revelation, Daniel and Isaiah? With unusual worldwide weather phenomena, such as the destructive 2012 East Coast super storm: http://www.foxnews.com/weather/slideshow/2012/10/31/superstorm-sandy-dev…, Japan’s devastating earthquake, Tsunami and nuclear disaster in 2011: http://tinyurl.com/bqrmb2q and Hurricane Katrina’s 2005 desolation: http://tinyurl.com/2dvqru5many believe we are. Thomas Horn, internationally acclaimed author along with respected theologian and apologist, Cris Putnam believe we are as well and tell readers why in their new release, Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here. And if they are right, the antichrist is alive and waiting in the wings to appear.
The first of four parts begins with Prophecy at our Doorstep, where they introduce Saint Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes,” a saint who many believed had the “gift of prophecy.” Saint Malachy recorded a vision he received during his visit to Rome in 1139 A.D. and gave his writings to the Vatican Pope Innocent II who hid it until 1590 when the prophecy was first published.
The vision contained a list of cryptic Latin verses that forecast 112 popes, from Saint Malachy’s time to the last pope named, Petrus Romanus (Peter the Roman). The prophecy said Peter the Roman would be the false prophet who joins the antichrist. Together they would form a one world religion and one-world government that would begin the great tribulation and the “great apostasy.”
Hal Lindsey said this about Malachy’s prophecy, “…the current pope, Benedict XVI, will be the next to last pope of the Roman church. After him will come a pope called Petrus Romanus, or Peter the Roman. Malachy appears to indicate that he will be the one who cooperates with the Antichrist, then will be turned upon and destroyed by the leader of the confederacy that rises out of the old Roman Empire.” http://tinyurl.com/bjs9r8n
In part two, the authors provide an Essential history of the Papacy that includes their exhaustive research on the Pope as Antichrist in chapter eleven. The third and fourth parts are about different features of the End Times, their doctrines, the United States, Vatican and more.
Readers also learn about the secrets of Fatima especially the fourth secret, Freemasonry, President Obama, the lost book of John Hogue, what theological giant Jonathan Edwards thought about the prophecy and much, much more.
Some say these authors are setting dates for Christ’s return, but I don’t believe they are. What they have done is condense some thorough and extensive research into 500 pages and leave the reader to decide for themselves.
The year 2012 seems filled with omens as it draws to a close. December 21, 2012’s fast approach causes excitement and fear based on what you believe. Yet our nation has never been more divided and more challenged with moral, family and economic issues than it is today. Could this mean these authors are correct and we’re entering the End Times? Read for yourself and draw your own conclusions.

Back Cover Copy:
For more than 800 years, Catholic and Evangelical scholars have pointed to the dark augury having to do with “the last Pope.” The prophecy, taken from St. Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes,” is among a list of verses predicting each of the Roman Catholic popes from Pope Celestine II to the final pope, “Peter the Roman,” whose reign heralds the beginning of “great apostasy” followed by great tribulation.
According to this prophecy, which was hidden away in the Vatican for hundreds of years, the next pope (following Benedict XVI) will be the false prophet who leads the world’s religious communities into embracing the political leaders known as Antichrist.
Unfortunately, as readers will learn, time for avoiding Peter the Roman just ran out!
Internationally acclaimed author Thomas Horn and respected theologian and apologist Cris Putnam share their investigative research into what you can expect to unfold in the coming days, and, more importantly, what you can do to be prepared for the arrival of Petrus Romanus and the kingdom of Antichrist.
